Term1 Week 8

This week we welcomed another Room 10 friend into our class, so now we are up to 17 with just one friend left to join us after the Easter holidays.

With Sam we learnt about how to make pictograms as we sorted out the different colours of home packs and hats we have in our class.

In maths with Tracy we were looking at ordering numbers. We were able to work as a team to to put numbers in order from smallest to largest even when some were missing

 On Thursday we did a Rich Maths Task, working with our maths buddies to find out how many pairs of shoes an octopus would need.

Our poem this week was also about an octopus having problems with his shoes.
In No Child Left Inside Jane helped us to develop some essential balance skills for tennis.

 Can you guess what our colour was for this week rrrr.......red. Next week we will be thinking about yellow or kowhai.
On Friday our Room 5 buddies helped us to make some paper Fortune Tellers.

Finally a very active Discovery Time was had by all and we saw some great examples or working together and relating to others.
